Did you know that Sylvanian Families comes from the word "Sylvan" which means "woodland dwellers", or "of the forest." That's why we thought we had better introduce a line of trees which would be perfect for any village or scene.
Don't you love the look of this Collecta brand Ginkgo Biloba tree. 24cm high and full of leafy branches. There are more than 20 individual branches on each tree which each come with their own sheaf of leaves. Leaves are attached to the end of the branch to create a tree that is lush and green! This is a high quality product.
Colour: a medium to dark green. The tree trunk has a gnarled look and is brown.
My own personal review: This is just the kind of tree I would have imagine for a Sylvanian woodland theme. It's beautifully made, good quality and coloured with realistic texture in the leaves and the trunk. Off all the Collecta trees in store this definitely has the most parts to it. More than 20 leaf clusters to be placed on branches, so Mum's help was definitely needed there. Also during play some of the leaf clusters can fall off the branches, so if little ones are playing with it it might be an idea to glue the leaf clusters on so they can't be knocked off constantly. The base is quite small for such a lot of greenery, so maybe a little blue-tack under the base could help. But it's a stunner of a tree!
Overall review: A magical tree! Love the gnarled old trunk! Would look perfect in any Sylvanian village. Keeping it up right during play can be a challenge, but this can be easily overcome. The box says suitable for age 3+, but I would recommend it as age 4+
Suitable for age 4+
